Co-ordinated by Eden Arts, C-Art promotes and celebrates Cumbria’s rich creative talent, inviting visitors to step into the gallery and the landscape to buy art, explore the landscape and to meet the artists themselves. The open studios event won the Tourism Event of the Year Award from Cumbria Tourism in 2014 and grew year after year.
For the 6 years of the festival, C-Art connected over 185,000 visitors to Cumbrian artists, and has seen over £665,000 in sales of Cumbrian art.
At its height, C-Art consisted of over 100 artists in remote and rural locations around Cumbria taking part in the Open Studio trail, renowned contemporary artists from across the UK and Europe bringing their latest works to Penrith, two contemporary arts exhibitions - Cumbrian Artist of the Year and Young Cumbrian Artist of the Year, an Art Fair, a programme of commissioned works, Art in Extraordinary Places and a Young Curators Scheme.
